How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Dermacare’s Quanta Discovery Pico+ laser removes ink by generating a variety of light wavelengths that target different ink colors. The light passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink, causing it to break into tiny particles, which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems.
What types of tattoos can be removed with laser tattoo removal?
Professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos. We can also do tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups.
How long does the treatment take?
Professional tattoos: 6-12 treatments Amateur tattoos: 4-5 treatments Tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups: varies, call for free consult The number of treatments, usually spaced 6-8 weeks apart, depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
Patients report a sensation similar to the snap of a small rubber band. Most patients don’t require local anesthesia, however we provide anesthetic numbing creams if needed.
What are typical results?
Following a series of treatments, the tattoos appearance may fade more than 95 percent, often erasing it completely. Results vary depending on the type of ink used and the depth of its application.
How do different colors in tattoos react to treatment?
Dark blue, black and red inks react most favorably to laser tattoo removal as do oranges and purples. Green, light blue and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, additional treatments may be needed to produce significant fading.
